YWCA Alaska/BP Women of Achievement Awards & Purse Auction
The Women of Achievement Awards and Purse Auction is an annual evening soiree that honors ten Alaskan women who have demonstrated qualities of leadership and excellence in their professional and personal endeavors as well as their contributions to the larger community. In conjunction with the Women of Achievement Awards ceremony, the YWCA holds a Purse Auction to raise support for its programs that work to empower women and eliminate racism. The annual awards ceremony and auction is held at the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts, Discovery Theater. The silent auction before the Women of Achievement Awards program is a fun event with hundreds of new and used handbags including a selection of designer purses. All proceeds from the auction go to benefit the programs of YWCA Alaska.
